dc.description.abstractFocusing on the Special Consultative Procedure (SCP), Long Term Council Community Plan (LTCCP) and LTCCP audit processes, this research studies the underlying theories and assumptions of Local Government Act (LGA) 2002’s theoretical framework. A case study is conducted in Dunedin to test whether the implementation of LGA 2002 in practise is consistent with its theoretical framework. Research results indicate that many theories and assumptions behind LGA 2002’s theoretical framework are not valid. The gap between SCP, LTCCP and LTCCP audit causes difficulties in implementing LGA 2002. Empowering communities, the ultimate purpose of LGA 2002, has not been realised. However, improvement of LGA 2002 implementation is expected when SCP, LTCCP and LTCCP audit become more efficient in the future.en_NZ
